Lead Student

My son's school has a set of core values that every child is expected to follow and emulate. Each week, one student is chosen as "lead student". This means they emulate the core values to an exceptional degree and are recognized for their leadership abilities. My son was lead student for the past week! Today at chapel, he traded in the medallion that the kids get to wear all week (as recognition for lead student) for a pin that he will get to wear on his chapel jacket lapel! I am so proud of him! He has become such a mature young man this school year, in addition to having an unbelievable growth spurt! I keep telling my friends he must want something really really big for Christmas, but I couldn't be happier with my kids! I am a single parent and as many of you know, it's very hard to do all you have to do and make sure your kids are on the right track all on your own. I have some pretty amazing kids!

That is WONDERFUL! How exciting for him! And what a great kid :) You must be one heck of a mom to raise a kid like that! Congratulations to both of you :)

What a handsome boy he is! I am so happy you shared this. It is so tough to be the parent of a teen and this goes to prove that you are doing all the right things. Congratulations on this marvelous accomplishment. Enjoy the day! Erin

Congratulations to both you and your son! It's nice to have recognition for leadership abilities. (and recognition for doing a good job with the especially hard task of being a single parent.)
